At Washtenaw Community College we believe that striving to minimize our global warming impact and become environmentally sustainable is closely tied to the college’s mission “to make a positive difference in people's lives through accessible and excellent educational programs and services.”   

In fulfilling our mission “we cooperate with other community organizations in seeking solutions to local economic and social problems.”  

As a primary educational resource in the community “we work to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve.”

As a signatory of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, the college:  “We believe colleges and universities must exercise leadership in their communities and throughout society by modeling ways to minimize global warming emissions, and by providing the knowledge and the educated graduates to achieve climate neutrality. “
